Best story from behind the wood | God dam my memory!! It’s not the best But…. I was serving a couple that had just got engaged, the bride-to-be was flashing around her new bling which She was so happy with. It was quite the pile of rocks! It wasn’t sized properly so she had put a bunch of tape around it to make it fit her finger. They enjoyed much champagne And then moved on to spread the news elsewhere. She returned an hour or so later in tears… sans ring!!! Luckily I had found the ring in out washroom and put it in the safe. It was rad to be able to put a smile back on her face and then I was the one having champagne and getting flowers courtesy of the bride!
